Polarized Politics: Protest Against COVID-19 Containment Policies in the USA
KATHARINA GABRIELA PFAFF, THOMAS PLÜMPER AND Eric Neumayer analyze protests against COVID-19 containment policies in U.S. states. They show that protest was strongly influenced by partisan control over state governorship and legislatures. The authors argue that protest events occurred in states fully controlled by Democrats even when they adopted similarly stringent containment policies as Republican-controlled states and that the same increase in stringency triggered more protest in blue than in red states.
